in katrina. and you heard governor christie, who is a republican with president obama working together, and that's how it's been from the president, to the governor, to the counties and the towns. one of the things that i did today was talk to fema about trying to get an office and staff person in various parts of the district today, and they're working on it, and with the money that comes to downs for recovery to rebuild board walks or municipal buildings, i think there is a 25% state and local match. so we ask that that be waived. many of the towns are small and can't afford that. so there's a lot of cooperation going on. >> when you're making those calls, someone is answering your call and you're getting responses -- >> i literally called the fema while i walked into the nbc building today and they called me back in ten minutes. >> i know you were personally evacuated, i know you're back without power, good luck to you, stay in touch. >> thank you. >> for reference, this is the sixth district in new jersey, do we have that map? there we go, it's marked in red there where, of course,
're governor of ohio. michigan has had one of the biggest drops in unemployment. when obama took office, michigan was a mess because of the auto industry. they've had a huge drop of unemployment. even though they a little bit higher now than michigan. and i was struck that governor kasich suggested that everybody was for the auto rescue. no, they weren't. most republicans, with the exception by the way of president george w. bush who let it happen with actions he took, were against the auto rescue. so i don't understand, well i do understand, but people just don't want to take responsibility for where they stood on that issue. >> this was a question, carly about the auto bailout b. what role government direct government money would play in restructuring these companies. >> that's right. and who stands first in line to be repaid? is it the unions? or is it debtors and creditors? that was the fundamental question. and the truth is, it is disingenuous and factually inaccurate to say that republicans weren't for the rescue of the auto industry. the question was how. and what. and who would

that president obama said yesterday when he was in ohio. he does this and said something about governor romney and the audience said don't boo but vote. he talked about senate cand date governor romney was opposed to clinton tax increases. listen to where he took that yesterday. at the time the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of romney. no, no, no. don't boo vote. vote. vote is the best revenge. voting is the best revenge. that is not a thing for the president to say. romney campaign has a new adout that looks as a strange thing for the president to say and an odd reason to vote. mitt romney worked that in new hampshire speech. >> yesterday, the president said something you may have heard by now that surprised a lot of people. speaking to the audience. he said voting is the best revenge. he told supporters voting for revenge. vote for revenge? let me tell you what i would want to tell you. vote for love of country. governor romney will be talking about that the rest of the day . last night a huge rally in westchester, ohio to kick off the final three days of the election

, with president obama, working together. and that's how it's been, from the president to the governor, all the way down to the county and the towns. so one of the things that i did today, in fact, i was just on the phone before i came in here, was talk to fema about trying to get an office and a staff person in various parts of the district that i viewed today, and they're working on it. i also asked, with the money that comes to towns for recovery, like to rebuild their boardwalks or their municipal buildings if they've lost it or their streets, i think there's a 25% state and local match. so we've asked and i believe the governor asked today that that be waived. a lot of these towns are very small and they can't afford that 25% match. so there's a lot of cooperation going on. >> and when you're making those calls, somebody's answering your calls and you're getting responses? >> i literally called fema, when i walked into your -- into the nbc building here today, and within ten minutes, they called me back. >> congressman frank pallone, represents new jersey's sixth congressional district. i know

obama, leading up to election day. governor romney expects to make a swing through florida tomorrow. just a reminder, the early voting resumes tomorrow in washington, d.c. and in maryland, and the hours have been extended from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. to try to make up for some of the time that was lost. anita? >> let's check out this new snow video we just got out of garrett county, maryland. the remnants of sandy collided with a cold front and this was the result. more than two feet fell in parts of garrett. there could be even more overnight. topper, you've told us again and again, western maryland completely different. >> they were under a blizzard warning. they were warned, but we didn't talk too much about it because we had our own problems here. now we can show you video. i actually have a picture of you drop a plumb line down into west virginia, and you get into the canadian valley a little further in the snowshoe. here's the picture they sent from snowshoe. they had 22 inches today. probably another 6 to 10 before it's all said and done. see the drift there? they were kind of
